Project: Scott River Dredge Tailings

Description: Grant to the Scott River Watershed Council to collect data, and prepare environmental studies, designs and draft permit applications for restoration of a 2.27 mile reach of the Scott River, including evaluation of 45 acres of adjacent floodplain, impacted by nineteenth-century mining activities. The entire 2.27 mile reach of river and adjacent floodplain, now known as the Callahan Dredger Tailings, likely provided abundant habitat for salmon and steelhead until ravaged by industrial mining activities. It is located on several private property parcels.
